What Is a Root Canal?
A root canal is a dental procedure in which Dr. Malki removes infected pulp from the pulp chamber inside of a tooth. Root canal treatment is sometimes referred to as endodontic therapy.
When cavities or cracks in your tooth allow bacteria to enter the pulp chamber, the pulp itself becomes infected. Infected pulp can result in an abscessed tooth and other health issues.

What to Expect From a Root Canal A Step-By-Step Breakdown
Streamlined Treatment With CEREC Technology at Our New Jersey Practice
Previously, root canals were performed over the course of two separate appointments. Now, our dentist can complete all the necessary steps in our office in a single day thanks to CEREC technology.
CEREC is an in-office unit that designs and mills custom dental restorations out of top-of-the-line ceramic. The whole process takes approximately one hour. CEREC saves our patients time and money and also avoids the hassle of wearing temporary crowns.
